Oklahoma State introduces new coach Underwood

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – A public introduction for new Oklahoma State basketball coach Brad Underwood was as much a trip down memory lane as it was a look to the future.

Several mentions were made of Eddie Sutton, who led Oklahoma State to Final Fours in 1995 and 2004. Much of Underwood’s speech was about his desire to return Oklahoma State to that level. Moe Iba – the son of former Oklahoma State coach Henry Iba, for whom the facility is partially named – attended.

Underwood will lead a team with some solid building blocks. Guard Phil Forte, who injured his elbow early this season and missed most of the games, said Wednesday that he will stay at Oklahoma State for his final year. Jawun Evans, one of the top freshmen in the nation this season, will return after missing the late part of the season with a shoulder injury.
